Tapestry needles are sometimes referred to as Cross Stitch needles. They have a large eye and a blunt round point and are especially adapted for the use in needlepoint, petit point, countered cross stitch and plastic canvas work. Larger tapestry needle sizes can also be used for stitching knitted projects together or crochet work and are sometimes referred to as sewing up needles. Great for darning and tapestry work.
